A KickAss ASP.NET development infrastructure!


How would you like to get your hands on a robust and easy-to-use ASP.NET based development infrastructure with built-in personalization, role-based security, advanced management tools, rich native .NET API, WS support,  tons of sample code and documentation, which is supported by a *major* vendor, is FREE, has great performance and scalability?


Well, take a look at Windows SharePoint Services (WSS). It has been officially released and is available for download from the Microsoft site. WSS replaces the somewhat shaky “Sharepoint Team Services” with a totally rewritten, ASP.NET based solution which kicks ass! And best of all – WSS is included in the Win2003 license, so you get it at no extra cost.


Definitely worth a look!

    Thats a clear vision of what WSS really is.

    Just remember that for each "personalization" created, and Windows Server 2003 CAL (client access license) is required. A pretty hefty cost if you’re talking about a community of 1,000+ users.
